Despite permanent declarations about the total deep crisis in modern Russian science, the social sciences and humanities turned out to be in a better situation than natural and technical ones. And even more: some social sciences and humanities such as economics, political science, law and sociology even experience an upsurge. The main causes of the prosperity of these disciplines are high social requirements of the education in social sciences and humanities, cult of politics and everything which is connected with it, rendering services to business and high demand for such professionals considered as experts in solving social problems. That’s here the main lines of interaction between social sciences and humanities and market economy in modern Russia are concentrated. Meanwhile the commercialization of national social sciences and humanities coincides with its cognitive liberalization and its transformation into the mechanism of the translation of knowledge produced by foreign science to our social practice.

In the work the fair division problem for two participants in presence of both divisible and indivisible items is considered. The set of all the divisions is formally described; it is demonstrated that fair (in terms of Brams and Taylor) divisions, unlikely the case where all the items are divisible, not always exist. The necessary and sufficient conditions of existence of proportional and equitable division were found. Three interrelated modifications of the notion of fair division – profitably, uniformly and equitably fair divisions – were introduced. Computationally efficient algorithm for finding all of them was designed. The algorithm includes repetitive solutions of integer knapsack-type problems as its essential steps. The statements of the article are illustrated by various examples.

Капелюшников Р. И. «Проблемы рынка труда». WP3. ГУ ВШЭ, 2011. № 09.

The paper examines dynamics in demand and supply of skilled labor in the russian economy over the transition period of 1990–2000-s. It shows that despite a huge inflow of workers with tertiary education demand for such workers grew in the russian labor market even faster. This explains why unemployment for workers with high educational attainment remained low; why returns to education continued to be high; why a proportion of college graduates who occupied low-skilled jobs decreased rather than increased. However in the next decades a relationship between demand and supply might radically change so that the russian economy could face with massive oversupply of highly educated workforce.

To be competitive, firms have to maintain level and composition of workforce they consider optimal given utilized technology and expected output. The paper discusses what types of firms are unable to keep optimal employment, and why. Do firms still report excess of labor or do they face labor shortage? What is the skill dimension for reported shortage and excess? Which factors raise probability of non-optimal employment and create adjustment barriers? Where are shortage or excess concentrated and what can explain their persistence? Finally, what are costs and ways to deal with non-optimal employment that firms are facing? The presented analysis is based on micro-data of the large-scale survey (2005) of Russian industrial firms.

Kazakhstan banking system is traditionally supposed to be more advanced than the Russian one. Since 2003 international accounting system was adopted in Kazakhstan and since 2005 Basel-2 norms were introduced (In Russia — no earlier than 2009). In the paper banks’ data for 2002– 2006 are used to estimate models of the banks’ technical efficiency and models of Moody’s bank ratings. In contrast to some previous papers, no significance difference is found for the average banks’ technical efficiency scores for the two countries at lest for the period 2002–2006. The rating models do not show significant difference in Moody’s experts approach for Russian and Kazakhstan banks’ ratings.

This paper compares the forecasting performance of random walk, frequentist vector autoregression  (VAR), and Bayesian vector autoregression with Minnesota prior (BVAR) models while forecasting the industrial production index, consumer price index and the interbank interest rate. We show that the BVAR provides a more accurate forecast than the standard VAR. For all three macroindicators of interest, all forecasting horizons, and all model sizes, the mean squared error of the BVAR is lower than for the VAR.   Moreover, the results show that the forecast made using the BVAR is more precise than the forecast made with a reference model (random walk – white noise)  for the CPI and the interbank rate. But the BVAR cannot beat the random walk when forecasting the industrial production index.

This paper focuses on three methods of parameter estimation in linear regression model with unknown distribution of noises. For different distributions of noises there were analytically calculated asymptotic relative efficiencies (ARE) of rank estimations towards LS-estimations and LAD-estimations. There were also simulated regression equations with specific parameters and distributions of noises applying the Monte Carlo method. For datasets with moderate number of entities there were calculated mean values of squared differences between estimation vectors and a real parameter vector over a thousand of simulated regression models. There were made some recommendations on the application of the LS method, the LAD method and the rank method for cases of different distributions of noises.

Why are some trade agreements are concluded for a limited period of time while others have the form of evergreen contracts supplemented with a clause requiring an advance termination notice? We employ the recent advances in contract theory to demonstrate that the time structure of the trade agreement is related to the nature of the goods traded and that of the trade-related investments. If the agreement concerns trade in homogenous goods, the fixed-term contract duration is more likely. The fixed-term agreement provides incentives for an initial investment in trade-related infrastructure but leaves the parties the flexibility to reconsider the need for further investment. If the trade agreement covers heterogenous goods, the investment risk is more diversified and the likelihood of overinvestment is lower. Hence the agreement is more likely to be evergreen (with an advance termination notice or an escape clause).

This paper is based on the author’s lecture given at the Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis 2007, organized by the State University — Higher School of Economics with the financial support of Innovation educational program. The author defines a reform as an intentional institutional change so in any economic system there are always some agents who develop and apply the transformation plan; that is why in his lecture the author emphasizes the institutional reform planning process. Referring to Russian experience of reforms compared to other countries’ (China, Slovenia, etc.) practice, two possible ways of new institution appearance are described: an institution may be constructed or imported from leading economic systems (the so called transplantation method). Some particular cases of reforming — such as “shock therapy”, intermediate institutions strategy appliance, etc. — are analyzed. Thus the paper discusses some of the requirements to the trajectory of institutional changes aimed to provide the successful reform realization.
